Biographical Text

Exeter City were delighted to announce in August 2021 that Irish striker Padraig Amond had joined the club on a season-long long deal from fellow League Two side Newport County.

The 33-year-old has been prolific in the Football League, and finished last season as the Exiles top scorer with nine league goals. Overall in his County career he has made well over 150 appearances, scoring over 50 times, including 23 in the 2018-19 season. 

Padraig began his career with Shamrock Rovers in his native Republic of Ireland and progressed through the rank before a stint at Sligo Rovers, before a short spell in Portugal with Pacos de Ferreira. He has had a number of successful spells with clubs in League Two, including Morecambe (19 goals in 82 appearances), Grimsby Town (30 in 40) and Hartlepool United (15 in 50).

He made his debut for Exeter on 15th August 2021 as a second half substitute in the 3-0 League Two defeat to Leyton Orient. Padraig scored his first goal against Bristol Rovers on the 10th November 2021, at home in the Football League Trophy. 

Padraig returned to Newport at the end of the 2021/22 season and wrote the following:- "The past season was one of the most enjoyable seasons of my career and I loved every second of it. Probably the best dressing room I have ever been in and to be promoted with those lads topped it all off. Thanks to the gaffer Matty Taylor and all the staff throughout the club for making my time there so good and enjoyable. Thank you to all the Grecian fans for all the support throughout the season. Hopefully we will all see each other again but if not memories made to last a lifetime" 

In June 2022 Padraig joined Woking on a two year contract.
